The Ko Ko Korina Fiasco
Originally sung by Ahmed Rushdi and performed by the Chocolate Hero-Waheed Murad, Ko Ko Korina is all time favorite of every person from all generations across Pakistan.
But Coke Studio in their attempt to re-create the song succeeded in destroying it. “Horrendous” at least that is what our minister for Human Rights, Shireen Mazari thinks about the song in her tweet:
Horrendous! Destroyed a great classic – why oh why did Coke Studio allow such a massacre of this classic song? https://t.co/Iq5gfCPYcr

While Momina replied by saying that it is the freedom of expression that has given Coke Studio the right to re-make the song this way:
On the other hand, various celeberites including Zoheb hassan have estimated that the rendition did not live up to the hype:
In fact, Waheed Murad’s son, Adil Murad, expressed that Coke Studio was run by “IDIOTS”.
A meme trend started after the release of Ko Ko Korina on the 19th of October. The video has been trending on YouTube gaining more than 73,000 dislikes.
Thank you @cokestudio for brutally ruining #KoKoKorina song. it’s not a music studio now, it’s becoming acting and glamor studio. these two, so called singers, completely ruined the sense of this classic song.

The poor choice of vocalists and the composition was not the only deficiency. The boisterous outfits and set up was also not appreciated by audiences:
